Great golf at an amazing price

This course isn’t a posh country club with a fancy clubhouse and top of the line everything. However, if you’re looking for a challenging, yet playable course with soft greens that hold iron shots and are lightning quick then this course is for you. Course was very well taken care of and the staff was very friendly. The icing on the cake was we paid through a tee time auction so it was only $23 for 18 and a cart. Definitely will be playing there again.

Nice little course. We will go back

My husband and I travel this stretch of road fairly frequently traveling back and forth from Ohio to Michigan.
Saw this course and decided we would break up our trip and stop and play nine holes. We enjoyed it and the staff was super friendly. We made another tee time for our next time through. We will play the full 18 holes on that trip.

Fair/poor

2:28 tee time is not a good hot deal time! They want you to hurry along so you don't interfere with leagues that start at 4:00. Then you get behind slow groups . This course has went through several owners and cant seam to get it right. This course is a 20 $ course on a good day! I will not pay full price to play here.

Great Local Course

Great Course to play on around Van Wert. Only thing keeping me from 5 stars was the lack of greens keeping. This is understandable because I went to golf in March! Most amenities areunavalable in the pre season.

just work on your game

If you want to work on your golf game play it for the price on golfnow. Can't work on your sand traps game there never take care of them (drop area). fairways are ok . The ruff needs Herbicide Crabgrass Broadleaf Grassy Weed Killer. Course is down hill and could use a green keeper to just work on sand traps. At one it was nice and great to play. But for $14.21 price with cart live with it. PS Please get a GPS to help you play quick and stop looking for yard markers very few on Course

Against the Odds

Amazing after getting 6+" of rain for the third time in a month that this course was open. There were signs of where water had laid and some small patches still with water laying. Greens were in good condition.

Nice Layout

Course was fairly nice, fairways were maintained well and greens were true. Tee boxes were pretty thick which made par 3's tough to hit clean. Overall was well worth the value.

Hickory Sticks Mounds

Hickory Sticks Championship course and the Mounds are not distinguished on the golf discount sites. We were assigned to the Mounds and the grass was long, there was an excessive amount of clover and if you got off of the fairway, it was extremely difficult to find your ball.

3rd nine not worth playing, otherwise decent.

We were unable to play the back 9 because of a league, so we were sent to a 3rd nine which was in poor shape. One green had about a hundred little insect hills cropping up and the greens would not hold a shot despite being slow. In general, this relatively new nine was poorly designed and is not very interesting to play.

The old front nine was fine. The new owners are working hard to bring this course back, and it is improved over several years ago.

Staff is super friendly and accommodating.
